Free pictures for your front door!

Help!  I'm at the beginning of the exciting process of renovating my oversized garage into a portrait studio.  I know - about time, right!?  Well, I have been watching Craigslist for the past 2 weeks looking for doors to buy because the door that is on the garage is...

Show Up Tomorrow Because You Care About The Arts!

How To Choose A Light Kit

Over the past three years this little photography business has been growing!  Two years ago I bought a humble 3-light Multiblitz MiniStudio lighting kit to use for studio portraits, head shots, and even event photography.  One year ago I started doing larger events...

How Do You Choose A Good Photo Lab?

One of my pet peeves as a photographer is photo labs that don't care enough to make great prints.  Most people don't really know what to look for, so they accept the quality from the lab they know of and end up with icky photos on their walls.  What's the point of...

Head Shots On A Cloudy Day

I had the pleasure of doing some artist's head shots for local musician Mary Rowan's website this weekend.  Mary was nervous about the session, and we agreed that doing the shoot in her back yard would be a great solution since it would provide all the comfort and...

Holiday gifts for parents and kids alike…

Who doesn't want a better camera?  From the time I was old enough to know what a camera was, I wanted one.  That was in the early 1980s, when "cheap" and "camera" were never uttered in the same sentence.  I had to wait until my 12th birthday before getting a camera of...

Kids Are So Fun To Photograph!

I can never say it enough:  I absolutely love photographing children. Parents tell me all the time "You have so much patience".  I guess they are right, but from my perspective I'm just on a play date with the kids.  It's a whole lot of fun!  And it ought to be... If...

Creative Family Portraits

The holiday season is about a lot of things.  It’s about bundling up and getting ready to spend some cozy time inside, trying out some new recipes and sharing delicious food.  It’s about recognizing the important people in your life and taking the time to thank them...

“Smiling Burger” Head Shots!

I was recently hired to cover an event at Red Robin to honor and recognize their dedicated "heart of house" staff, who make the food. This event is kind of like a "Top Chef" quick fire challenge where all the contestants compete against each other and the clock to...

Couples Portraits

I was lucky enough to be able to photograph Amanda and Randy this week. They were on a mission, they've been together for 6 months and Randy's mom requested photos for her birthday. They said they needed at least a couple great portraits for her gift, but also loved...

Tie Dye Birthday

Zander turned 1 this month and since dad has been making tie dye all his life, what better way to celebrate than with family pictures where everyone is wearing tie dye!   This little guy has grown so much since he was in as a newborn... it's always amazing to me how...

Foggy Family Beach Pictures

Weather is not easy to predict. It seems like the end of August would be guaranteed excellent weather, but in the Puget Sound fog is always a possibility. Mom was visibly disappointed when she arrived at 11AM with everyone dressed in bright summery outfits and no sun...

Wyatt’s 1-Year Photos

It's been a pleasure to watch Wyatt grow up over the past year. I can't believe he is already a year old! Now I've done a fair few of these first birthday cake disaster shoots and they are always interesting. Typically, you have to hold the baby back from destroying...
